Moffat County School District Board of Education to discuss board reconfiguration

Craig Press staff report

CRAIG — The Moffat County School District Board of Education is set to discuss a potential reconfiguration of the board when it meets for a work session at 4 p.m. Thursday, June 28, in the boardroom of the Yampa Building, 775 Yampa Ave.

The work session will be followed by the board's regular meeting at 6:30 p.m.

In April, the board took the first steps in creating a ballot measure, which, if approved by voters, would retain a seven-member board, but would reduce district-specific seats from seven to five and open two seats to candidates at-large.

The proposed change was prompted by an inability by the board to fill its seventh seat, which is specific to District 6. So long as no one living in District 6 — an area roughly north and east of Craig — comes forward to fill the seat, it will remain vacant, leaving the board vulnerable to deadlock.

The change is intended to open the seat to at-large candidates and, hopefully, increase the number of potential candidates for the post.

Thursday's work session agenda also includes the following.
